With Disney in the early stages of developing its hit animated musical "Frozen" for the stage, we wondered: Who should star as Snow Queen Elsa in the future adaptation?
Playbill.com polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter to see who they would like to play the role, voiced on screen by Tony winner Idina Menzel, and why.
Kristin Thomas: Sutton Foster. No need for explanation Tyler Craig Smith: Definitely Sutton Foster Madeleine Kate: Sutton Foster as Elsa and Laura Osnes as Anna. SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN! Jared Hadley: Sutton foster! Tom Anderson: Sutton Foster for either role. She's probably better suited for Anna though. @KristinLasVegas: Sutton Foster!! You need a Broadway powerhouse for that role!!
Two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster, who originated the role of Princess Fiona in the Broadway musical Shrek, was among our readers' top choice for Elsa, the Snow Queen of Arendelle. The actress, who received Tonys for her performances in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Anything Goes, will return to Broadway in the spring in Roundabout Theatre Company's Violet. She is currently playing the Café Carlyle through Jan. 24. Read Playbill.com's recap of Foster's recent Carlyle engagement.
